Long Overdue...and a freebie!

I am so sorry for not blogging for so long. I sort of hit a snafu a couple of months back.

I didn't realise you're not allowed to stay in the states for more than six months per year. When I was visiting my husband in Colorado, we stayed there for a few months, came back home for a few weeks, then went back down again. We did this for two years. When he only had 2 1/2 months left of his program, we were at the border getting ready to cross when the officer told us to go in. We waited at the US Customs office for over 2 hours when someone finally came out. I got interrogated since they thought my husband was trying to smuggle me in illegally to live in the States.

Anyway, to make a long story short, I ended up getting denied entry and am not allowed to go back anywhere in the States for 5 1/2 years (so much for a trip to Disneyland).

Since I was stuck here in December, I didn't have my files to do any new digital scrapbooking kits. Only had the HP Touchpad as my temporary computer. My husband's computer was still back in Colorado. Now that he's back, I am able to get back to making more freebies.

Before I do that, I am also letting you know I have new items in my etsy store. They are cellphone charms.
Rapunzel with UV lanyard
different princesses
Harry Potter - the crystal heart has the Hogwarts crest
I added the clasp for everyone to have the option of removing the charm from the lanyard and adding it to a zipper, keychain, etc... You can choose from regular lanyard (second picture), keychain, or this cool UV lanyard. Inside the beads are white; outside the beads turn multicolour. I think the darker they go, the more sunscreen you should put on. As a request, I even made a Harry Potter one. Instead of the Hogwarts crest, people can change it to Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, or Ravenclaw. I can even do Hermione, Ron, Draco, etc...

Well, that's all I have for now. Before I go, here is your freebie. It's an Easter themed kit. There are more elements than what is shown.

Hope you like it. And I promise an Elmo kit is coming soon.
